ND man sentenced for Montana stabbingRED LODGE, Mont. — A North Dakota man was sentenced to four years in a Montana prison for stabbing a man during a fight in Red Lodge last year.
The Billings Gazette reports District Judge Blair Jones sentenced 28-year-old William John Quade on Thursday to 13 years in prison with nine suspended.
Quade, of Fargo, N.D., pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault after initially being charged with attempted deliberate homicide for the June 22, 2011 stabbing of 27-year-old Aaron Edmondson.
Prosecutors say Edmondson met Quade at a Red Lodge bar and invited him to a house party, where a woman accused Quade of stealing money. Quade left, but returned a short time later with a knife and stabbed Edmondson several times. One stab wound punctured his lung.
Quade has remained jailed on $250,000 bail since his arrest.
